I have a 45.5 PW, 50 UW, 54.5 SW and 59 LW. The P and U are part of the iron set and the P came stock at 46. The S and L are not part of the set (but are also Ping so not drastically different) and were stock at 54 and 58. My fitter thought I should have even gaps so he bent the P, S and L. (my 9 iron is 41, so all gaps from there down are 4.5 degrees)
Keep in mind though, that doesn't necessarily equate to even yardage gaps. There is definitely a bigger gap between the U and the S for me. Possibly attributable to not usually taking hard swings with the S, but regardless I have been considering making the S stronger or the U weaker ... maybe 51.

I agree with Ernest that you might want to consider something in between those 2. Until I got my new clubs in August, I had almost the exact same gap (47-56 actually). It's nice to not have to stress over a 30 yard hole at the bottom of my set anymore. Now I get to stress over not being able to hit them correctly. :)
However, if you get something and know you're going to bend it, I'd go the other way. If you need 51, then bend a 50, because bounce is your friend and you want more of it, not less. :)
